Our modular cameras are made for use in hazardous areas. The ExCam series is certified according to European regulations (ATEX) as well as international ones (IECEx).Our flexible modular high-performance ex-cameras are based on a divided network camera concept. This means that the cameras consist of two seperate elements, which can be combined very flexible. Every modular camera consits of an ultra compact sensor unit (SU) to capture images and a main unit (MU) for image processing and network connection. These two units are connected by a cable and could be placed seperately. The sensor unit can be mounted in even the smallest installation space while the main unit could be installed where there is more space.

- Easy VMS Integration
Flexible combi-solution for your individual specific needs
The main unit can connect up to four sensor units. A combination of visual and thermal sensors in only one stream is simple to realize. Several cameras could be installed cost-effective. This cost-effective multi-view surveillance only needs 1 ethernet cable, 1 network port, 1 switch, 1 IP-adress and therefore only 1 licence video management software. To start small and add more cameras later is no problem.
Explosion-proof IP-camera with ATEX- & IECEx-certification
Besides the European regulations (ATEX), the ExCam series is also certified according to international regulations (IECEx). The housings’ certification comprises ATEX group I (mining) with a low risk of mechanical threat and ATEX group II (Gas and Dust) for zone 1, 2 as well as 21 and 22 including the explosion groups IIC / IIIC with a high risk of mechanical threat.
During the modular camera’s development stage the focus was clearly laid on security aspects as well as mechanical precision and high-quality stainless steels. In addition, the modular design of the housing components prior to the camera’s development allows a free combination of the individual housing components such as different flanges in combination with the housing body - without any limitations regarding explosion protection.
Regarding the technical parameters we have pushed the limits of what is feasible: In the media resistance and the ambient temperature we set standards with the ExCam series.
Media resistance and seals
Due to the high-quality materials used for the T07 Series, it meets the requirements of a comprehensive media resistance list! The particularly designed GYLON (PTFE) flat sealing does not only ensure the housing to be watertight (IP68) but also supports the resistance towards several chemicals. The extremely robust and scratch-proof as well as high-impact resistant borosilicate glass fits perfectly into the high-quality materials of the housing body.
Ultra compact housing
With its length of just 127 mm and a diameter of only 48 mm, the sensor units are smaller than some camera models for safe areas – but with more powerful functions. They can easily be installed on places where there is small space.
Local record stores & Edge Storage
The main unit FA54 has a microSD / microSDHC slot for a memory card of up to 64 GB (card not included) so that each camera disposes of an integrated recording device. In addition, the camera supports the active recording of streams into a central network directory (network storage or file server).
Benefits of digital network video surveillance
An IP network video surveillance system offers numerous advantages and special features:
• Remote access
• High image quality
• Event management and intelligent video
• Easy, safe and sustainable integration
• Scalability and flexibility
• Cost efficiency
Network cameras and video encoders can be accessed and configured remotely so that multiple authorized users can watch live video images at any time and from any networked location worldwide. This is an advantage in case you want to grant users of other companies, e.g. of a security company, access to the video images as well.
Easy, safe and sustainable integration
Network video products based on open standards can be integrated simply in combination with video management and application software.
Scalability and flexibility
A network video system can grow with the needs of its users. For IP-based systems, the same wired or wireless network can be used for data exchange by many network cameras and video encoders as well as other types of applications.
Therefore, a variable number of network video products can be added to the system without the need for extensive or expensive changes to the network infrastructure. In an analog system this is not possible. In an analog video system a particularly provided coaxial cable must be wired directly from each camera to a display / recording station. In comparison, network video products can virtually be placed at any site and incorporated into any network. They can be open or strictly protected.
An IP-Surveillance system typically has a lower total operating cost than a conventional analog CCTV system. In most cases, an IP network infrastructure does already exist so that a network video application can be easily integrated into the existing infrastructure. Wired or wireless networking solutions are also much cheaper than coaxial and fiber optic cable for analog CCTV systems. The administrative as well as equipment costs are lower as back-end storage applications that can be purchased off the shelve basically everywhere in the world.
